NETRF Research Symposium to take place in November

In support of efforts to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus by reducing travel and large gatherings, NETRF has decided to postpone its Research Symposium planned for May 19-20, 2020, Boston, MA, USA.  We currently plan to hold the Symposium at the same location on November 17-18,  2020 and hope that the conditions in the fall will be safer for travel for the attendees coming to Boston from around the world.

Despite our postponement, we encourage everyone to complete their scheduled registration and abstract submissions and thank those who have already done so. We will transfer these registrations for use in the fall meeting and they will remain accessible in ProposalCENTRAL in the interim so that attendees can amend or update their abstracts or registrations as needed.

To those who may have already made travel plans, we regret any inconvenience this postponement may cause and appreciate your patience and cooperation. We will email updates but please monitor our website for information regarding the rescheduled event date.

Our goal is to protect the health of all the members of the NET community— researchers, clinicians, and, ultimately, patients. 

About the NETRF Research Symposium

The Annual Research Symposium includes invited neuroendocrine tumor (NET) investigators as well as distinguished experts in other types of cancers with relevance to NETs. To broaden the Symposium scope and promote collegial discussion, the 2020 Symposium will also include a new Poster session.

The Symposium provides a forum for leaders in the field to discuss the latest developments in basic, translational and clinical research in NETs. It also offers a platform for scientists to respectfully share unpublished data and explore new collaborative efforts.
